Eliminating The Internal Distraction

Eliminating The Internal Distraction

Internal hesitation basically happens when prioritizing things over others without considering own life values and goals. (E.g. going for a birthday’s party instead of preparing tomorrow’s job interview, torn between friendships and career).

  • Reflect on your life values and prioritizing them correctly, this acts as a compass guiding you through life and giving meaning in all your actions.
  • The more our values and priorities are in the perfect order this would lead to the most meaningful life we could live.
